Heidi Caswell Zander One-Artist Show

October 26 – November 7, 2019
Opening Reception: Saturday, October 26th, 2 – 4 PM


An exhibition of oil paintings by Rockport artist Heidi Caswell Zander will open in the Marguerite Pearson Room of the Rockport Art Association & Museum (RAA&M) on Saturday, October 26th with an artist’s reception from 2 – 4 PM. The exhibition will be on view Saturday, October 26 – Thursday, November 7.

Heidi Caswell Zander’s work bares the imprint of growing up immersed in the artist culture of Cape Ann, Massachusetts. As a youth, summer days were spent in adult workshops absorbing the enthusiasm for capturing a cloud on 140 lb. watercolor paper, for being a link between natural wonder observed on location to its impression on a rectangle which would hang on a wall. Rich color and connection to place are the prime elements of her works. Caswell Zander’s signature brushstroke, which is used to convey both the excitement of creating the image as well as the value of making a mark, is retained through process, marks articulated and layered through to the final piece. There is an energy displayed by these brushstrokes. She distills from observation the essence of objects, their radiant colors, vibrancy of life, the subtleties of their relationships, their harmonies and completeness.

Heidi Caswell Zander is owner and sole artist of Tidal Edge Gallery in Rockport which opened in 2005.

A Rhode Island School of Design B.F.A. & M.A.T. graduate and member of the RISD European Honor Society, she has also lived in Rome, Italy, New York, and Berlin, Germany. Heidi is a juried artist member of the Rockport Art Association & Museum, North Shore Art Association and National Association of Women Artists. She is currently Rockport Art Association & Museum’s President. Her paintings are in collections throughout the United States and Europe.
